An Elkins City Police officer was injured Tuesday evening when his wife apparently struck the side of his vehicle with her car near Rich Mountain, according to Randolph County Chief Deputy Mark Brady. Willard Lewis was driving a 1994 F-150 pickup truck while turning onto U.S. 33 west from Route 31 when his vehicle was struck from the side. His wife, Roxanna Lewis, the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt was in a parking area and pulled out and hit Willard Lewis' truck. A 6-week-old child was with Willard Lewis in the vehicle and both were transported to Davis Memorial Hospital by Randolph County EMS. Willard Lewis and the child were treated and released, Brady said. Roxanna Lewis was taken by HealthNet to a Morgantown hospital. Brady did not know Roxanna Lewis' condition this morning. The incident is still under investigation by the Randolph County Sheriff's Department. Charges are pending, but no citations have been issued. [LINK]
